CGC Partners with ACE Comic Con for a Private Signing Event with Josh Brolin

Posted on 6/14/2021

CGC announces a Private Signing with acclaimed actor Josh Brolin!

CGC is thrilled to announce an exclusive Private Signing with Academy Award-nominated actor, Josh Brolin. He is well known as Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and also for his role as Cable in Deadpool 2. As Thanos, he made cameo appearances in Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Brolin’s other celebrated film work includes Milk, American Gangster, Planet Terror, Sicario, No Country for Old Men and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. He received awards from the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Board of Review for his portrayal of Dan White in the film Milk. Brolin has also starred in numerous shows such as ABC’s western TV series The Young Riders, Winnetka Road and Mister Sterling.

“Josh Brolin’s Thanos is quite possibly the most historically important and sinister villain since Darth Vader,” said Stephen Shamus, ACE Universe President. “ACE Comic Con and CGC have once again partnered to bring you the greatest A-list celebrities for CGC Signature Series. Josh has portrayed not one, but two iconic superhero characters with Thanos and Cable and has had a remarkable career starring in many classic films. ACE and CGC always love to bring you the best and we feel like we’ve done it again!"

For this exclusive event, ALL CGC members, including free CGC members, can submit books directly to CGC headquarters in Sarasota, Florida. CGC must receive all submissions for this event by Friday, July 16, 2021.

If the CGC Private Signing needs to be rescheduled, CGC will securely store all submissions in its vault until the event can be rescheduled.

After Josh Brolin signs the submitted books, CGC will grade and encapsulate them with an estimated turnaround time of six weeks. If CCS pressing is also requested, the turnaround time is estimated at eight weeks. After grading and encapsulation, the collectibles will be shipped back to their owners.
